The Password is Bingo (finished product) by TheSkull31

I really like this! It works in a way where you see two things instead of one; in this case, I see both the letters, and I also see dif...

So, I decided to make another segment in which I give you my theories about different mediums. Yeah, I realized when I made my Five Nights at Freddy's theory that it was actually quite fun, so I want to do some more. This segment will not have any specific format. It will mostly consist of me theorizing about topics I feel like talking about. Today, I would like to talk about how the infamous Sonic.exe might not be what he first appears. I cannot guarantee that this theory will make sense, or that it will not ruin your experience with the pasta. But I can at least provide a different context that might make the experience less creepy for the squeamish, or at least make the pasta a bit more interesting than it already is.

Now, judging this character on face value, one might think that he is a demon hellbent on tormenting people. The latter is very true, because as evidenced in both the creepypasta and the fangame, he does just that. However, the reason why I doubt the demon-part is because by just looking at his mannerisms and actions, he does not seem all that unorthodox. What I mean is that his behavior can easily be identified as something a typical over-the-top villain would do, not just a demon.

So, the question is this: Is Sonic.exe really a demon? In my opinion, I feel there could be something else at play here.

In order to prove my point, I will need to list all things that Sonic.exe does in the pasta and in the game:

  • He torments and kills people
  • He can fly
  • He can teleport


Yeah, this is basically all we have in terms of character for this guy. He doesn't really do anything "demonic" in the conventional sense; he doesn't possess people, he doesn't speak in tongues and he doesn't trick people into giving up their souls. Sure, he torments and kills people, can fly and teleport, but that does not a demon make. The soul part is indeed mentioned in the pasta, but judging by how insane the character is, it could easily be chalked up to a sick guy's ramblings.

So, what do I think Sonic.exe is? Well, in order to prove my point there, I need to cover his physical attributes. Sure, there is not much to go on there; he looks just like Sonic, with the only difference being his blackened eyes with red glowing irises. However, I ask you: Who else in the Sonic-universe looks like Sonic and has blackened eyes with red irises?

To my knowledge, the only one who fits that description is none other than Metal Sonic.

Yeah, my theory is that Sonic.exe is a more advanced version of Metal Sonic. That would also fit with his ability-list; he torments (and possibly kills) people, can fly and can possibly teleport (I mean, it's an advanced robot after all. If Metal Sonic could do meta-physical stuff in Sonic Heroes, why wouldn't he here?). In my mind, I think Dr. Robotnik built a new version of Metal Sonic that looked exactly like Sonic, and he intended to use it to torment and kill all of Sonic's friends. So, he made the robot look incredibly creepy by painting blood stains under its eyes and sent it out. However, after the job was done, the robot's circuits overrided to the point where his loyalty to the doctor vanished, and he came for him too.

Sure, the pasta goes into such extreme lengths as to say that the game is cursed, and that it will give you free plushies after you play it. But hey, I think the story lost all credibility even before that point, so who gives a feck?

There is no denying that Porygon's name is based on the word "polygon". To be honest, it is a very fitting name, because of his multiple edges. However, when he evolves, he loses all edges. So, why is he still called "Porygon", when he is nothing like an actual polygon?

OK, so the long awaited teaser trailer finally came out yesterday! How fun! :D

Yeah, I watched it, and... I am a LITTLE underwhelmed. Now, NOT because what I saw wasn't good; in fact, it was REALLY good! But the problem with teaser trailers is that they are not ACTUAL trailers. Both you and I know that the point of a video game trailer is to show off actual gameplay footage. We barely saw anything of the sort in this trailer, which I felt was kind of sad, considering how excellent the trailer for FNAF 2 was. Yeah, I know that the original FNAF did not have any gameplay footage either, but the thing that trailer had in it's favor was that it was well directed enough to spark intrigue WITHOUT said footage. To be honest, that was probably the best way to go; do not show the gameplay before people play it. However, this franchise is not brand new anymore, and it is therefore fair to expect a trailer for an upcoming sequel to show what it is this installment does different than the previous one. 

Either way, seeing as this is part of a property we have gotten to know and love over the short timespan of under a year, I am totally on board with the fact that this trailer exists to tell us that more pieces to this elaborate puzzle will be provided very soon. So, seeing as this trailer was made by Scott Cawthon (AKA Nolan Bushnell), and seeing as how tricky it can be to get a straight answer from him sometimes, I wonder what it is we can gather from this below one minute-teaser, and the hype surrounding the game so far. 

OK, so according to the description on Steam, this does in fact take place 30 years in the future. The Freddy Fazbear-franchise has closed down, and everything pertaining to it have been left to rot. There are rumors that this will take place in a different location (specifically, a haunted house of some sort), and you will only be haunted by ONE animatronic (which seems to pertain to the "one left" phrase). 

This is really interesting, because it makes me wonder how this game will work with only one animatronic to worry about (IF that is indeed the case). This is why it would have been cool to some gameplay footage as well, you know? Will there be doors, flashlights, masks? Or will there be something else entirely? 

Well, the teaser may be a bit ambiguous, but judging by how it is photographed may suggest that this game is more free-roaming. Like, you have to move around, and avoid the animatronic at all costs. I somehow doubt it, though. 

OK, so there is not much else to go on for the moment, so I will just end this by saying one thing about the graphics: I did not think too highly of the color choices. It is a bit too muddy for my taste, and it doesn't catch my eye the same way the other two did.

Well, since everybody is trying to make heads and tails out of the increasingly elaborate Five Nights at Freddy’s lore, I felt like pitching in with my own theories. However, just so you know, this will not be an attempt at making the lore make more sense; this is just a detail that I found very fascinating. I do not know if I am the only one who noticed this, but I still feel like making it known to the people who want to know.

 

OK, so we all know that Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza Place is a direct lift from real life pizzeria chain: Chuck E. Cheese’s (what with the child-friendly interior, great emphasis on games, animatronic bands, and the fact that they both happen to be pizzerias). There are plenty of similarities between the two places, so it would not be surprising if there were more similarities to be found. Luckily, I did find a fascinating similarity that further proves that Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza Place is indeed modelled after Chuck E. Cheese’s.

 

This theory is partly based on the theory posed by MatPat in his Five Nights at Freddy’s 2-video on Game Theory. The detail that created a couple of question mark for me was this explanation he made about the death mini-games: “You get these disturbing death mini-games which, true to the 1987 setting, use Atari-esque graphics to depict various horrific events.” The key phrase here is “true to the 1987 setting”. Granted, the graphics of the death mini-games are indeed supposed to mimic the graphics of the Atari 2600, which was a system that was still around in 1987.

 

However, there is a problem here: the phrase “true to the 1987 setting” seems to imply that the Atari 2600 was the only prominent gaming system around that time, and thus all the games released in that era would have the same graphical style. That is not the case, because the NES (released 1983 in Japan and 1985 in North America) and Sega Master System (released 1985 in Japan and 1986 in North America) were both on the market alongside the Atari 2600. So, it was not the graphical standard by 1987.

 

This poses another question: Why are the death mini-games depicted in Atari-graphics, when there were other graphical styles available in the 1987 setting? It could be to make the already creepy events look even creepier through limited detail (because it contrasts with the severe nature of said events), or it could simply be an aesthetic choice on Scott Cawthon’s part. However, if we were to look for a real world counterpart (i.e. compare these details to the details surrounding Chuck E. Cheese’s), we could actually find a legitimately plausible reason for this design choice.

 

In other words: what do Atari and Chuck E. Cheese’s have in common? Two words: Nolan Bushnell. Nolan was the founder of Atari, and in an attempt at making video gaming more mainstream, he was also the founder of a pizza chain called Pizza Time Theatre (which was one of the first fast food joints that combined fast food with arcade gaming). This might seem random at first, but Pizza Time Theatre would later evolve into its contemporary successor: Chuck E. Cheese’s; Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza Place’s inspiration.

 

So, the Atari death mini-games in FNAF 2 might be based on the fact that the founder of both Atari and Chuck E. Cheese’s is the same guy. This is really interesting, because this might be used to develop the lore further, which in turn creates more similarities between Freddy and Chuck E. Like, was Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza founded by a successful video game developer?

 

… Wait a second. Scott Cawthon created Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, and he is a successful video game developer. So… that means…

 

SCOTT CAWTHON IS NOLAN BUSHNELL!!!
